Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
That darn OFM is a busy son of a gun. He is getting his stuff in order for more of something. Maybe we will find out later what is going on in his head other than the rattling of his pea brain.
First thing he did was head to the grocery store to refill the Castle. Of course when he got there a cute young nurse was giving flu shots, so he had to piddle around and flirt with her for a while. Of course someone 55 years old is young to the OFM. Medi-care pays for the shot so of course he has to get one. However it does seem to help and living alone you need all that kind of help you can get.
Finally we got around to buying food. Even with a list he had trouble finding everything he wanted to take home. $40 later the Team made it back to the Castle just before another rain storm.
Before you knew it he was on the computer getting the new tags for the Rolling Team ordered and paid for. Texas sure makes it easy to divest yourself of money. WOW.
The OFM decided to try some Campbell’s Gumbo for lunch today. Well it is fairly decent stuff but a long way from decent GUMBO.
But you know how to make that stuff sizzle. Pop in a teaspoon of Hatch Big Jim diced chiles and the soup grows FANGS. Now we have some decent eating. Yeah.
Ok this is for all you folks that think 66 is too old to be traipsing around the country in an RV or tent. The OFM has some friends he met down in Bibe. They have a house over near Houston, Texas. They very recently returned from a short RV trip in their travel trailer pulled by a diesel truck like the Truck only newer. They spent three months going across Texas, New Mexico and up into the mountains in Colorado. Walking around all over the place seeing the sights and generally trying to have tooooo much fun. Oh By the way they are in their 80’s. They go places so high the OFM would pass out just standing up. My heroes.
There is an old saying about how to live life as in dance like no one is watching. When the OFM tries to dance he tangles his legs and bonks his head. So he has adopted a saying to fit his lifestyle. Paint pictures like nobody will see them. That leaves him free to paint silly nonsense and enjoy it.
The OFM was reading an art article today while staying inside avoiding the rain. There was no use in going fishing, the fish stay inside when it is raining so they will not get wet. The article was about “loosening your art style”. Dizzy Dick has mentioned loosening the style of the paintings. The object of this lesson was to paint a piece of work that did not represent anything. If it started to look like something on purpose, you had to immediately cause it to not look like something. That was harder that it seemed. Here is the result that was named CONFUSION.
As it turned out that, painting was a fun way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
